More or less 20.000 nodes for Viluyskoe Reservoir kept me busy the whole day... I can't see no lake anymore... what am I doing this all for ?!?

Location: Mirninsky Ulus, Sakha Republic, Far Eastern Federal District, Russia

Dear Katpatuka,

Right now I am merging all the coastline traces that you created and changing the natural:coastline tag for a natural:water tag. I hope you don't mind that change and that it renders OK on Wednesday. We can see how it works in a short while in Osmarender (I will request a render for the area as soon as I finish merging the traces and changing the tag).

Excellent work by the way. Congratulations.

Cheers

natural:water is for "closed areas", natural:coastline for the shore of seas or really large lakes. Did you read http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Tag:natural%3Dwater ? I don't like the coastline solution too - it should rather be something like natural:lakeshore or so but water is for areas only. I don't think it will render correctly. A lake with 20.000 nodes as area cannot be opened in potlatch or josm...!

I was wrong: all together 33.900 nodes :-D

Drawing this stuff from yahoo images work quite well in Merkaartor. It tried to contribute some kilometers of Нижняя Тунгуска.

Maşallah, this is one fricking big and difficult lake to draw. And I tought my lake Edirne was complicated (Coordinates: 38.05 / 31.84 at http://informationfreeway.org/?lat=38.05&lon=30.84&zoom=10&layers=B0000F000F ) :-)
